Formally established in 2011, Chicago Truborn is a non–traditional gallery dedicated to supporting, often neglected, mediums of artistic creation with an emphasis on street/urban/graffiti. The gallery is known for providing collectors with affordable artwork in an approachable environment without sacrificing quality.
Chicago Truborn works with local and international artists – predominantly those who paint with aerosol. At every exhibition’s opening, the featured artist paints two (site specific) murals – in store – to coincide with their body of work. This is just one contributing factor in having been repeatedly awarded the title “Best Gallery”.
Chicago Truborn’s reputation has grown immensely through its vital role in the public arts scene and continued dedication to mural production. Gallery owner and mural facilitator Sara Dulkin has been instrumental in Chicago’s public arts renaissance as co-curator on projects like the Wabash Arts Corridor and the West Town Public Arts Initiative. Having curated and site managed over 50 public pieces in Chicago alone, Ms. Dulkin has partnered with numerous neighborhood groups as well as larger organizations such as the Chicago Bears & Nike.
Enjoying artwork should not be intimidating, nor an experience reserved for the upper class. Please come in, ask questions, take pictures and #BecomeAcollector
